As soon as the viral air clears
In the Kumbaya Café
    Friends, just when it seemed as if we were on a role on the shore, an unwelcome visitor hit our town... and your town..
    indeed, it hit the entire world.  Covid-19 has been devastating, claiming the lives of nearly 190,000 as of April 23, 2020
    at 3 p.m. Eastern Standard time, with the United States leading in deaths at nearly 50,000.  

    The good news is that of the 2, 700,000 confirmed cases, over 740,000 people have recovered, and where safe practices are
    being kept, the curve is flattening.  Stay the course.

    Kumbaya on the Shore will reopen once the State of Ohio lifts it's "stay at home" order under the recommendations of
    epidemiologist securing data regarding the constraint of the disease.   

    We want to live up to our moniker as a  "place of peaceful pastime.  That includes the peace of mind that we can safely gather
    without worry of contacting or passing on the disease.

    Until then, please take time to read our first quarter 2020 newsletters below, reflecting on Kumbaya events and significant
    moments in our nation's African American and Women's history.    When this moment of trial passes, more than ever
    I will look forward to seeing you on the shore!
